一位神學生的分享:「專注」的必要及操練

Posted by Joyce Chen 許陳 明正 on December 14, 2010

身為學生,每天有固定的進度要完成,從某個角度而言,壓力是存在的,一直不停的用腦,因此,常對家人說,目前對我而言,最需要的休息就是能夠暫時不用頭腦,躺著發呆一下,最需要的操練就是學習專注,完全的專注於所要學習的,並且盡力維持在進度中,如此,才能將所要學習的科目學的好學的深。我自己也常對神學生說,能進神學院讀書,這一段時間是相當可貴的,要心無旁騖,專心讀書。

 我自認資質不佳,學習時倘若不專注,就無法學的透澈完整。如果我深信上帝要我這段時間讀書,我就要順服上帝,專注於讀書,並且倚靠聖靈分辨甚麼是此時的優先次序,放下該放下的。

放下不是一件容易的操練,當我們顧到各樣層面的人情世故時就會放不下,此時,就要向上帝呼求,求祂賜智慧,在不讓周遭的人誤會自己的狀況下,知道放下。

 我的學習乃是,耐心向周圍的人說明自己正在讀書,目前不能像以前一般事事顧到,因為,讀書讀到睡眠的時間都不夠了。愛我的親人及朋友都很諒解,不然,加州是我親朋所在之處,飯局可是吃不完的。但是目前,他們都知道我讀書重要。我還告訴他們,我只有這幾年會如此特別需要專注於讀書 (因為程度太差)。

這是我這一段時間的操練;如何在專注的同時,也得到親朋的支持與諒解(我的暫時不sociable)。很可愛的是,只要我出現了,他們就會很關心的問我進度如何,我也將所學習的短短的(一分鐘)與他們分享。

目前我專注的程度還是不夠,求神憐憫。其實face book很讓我分心,常想關閉我的face book,因為就在我讀書的電腦裡,很容易就會看到,但是,一直無法做此決定,一方面是,face book是與朋友接觸很方便的點,另一方面則是可以在讀書讀累時,看看朋友們所寫的,不但可以知道如何為他們代禱,同時從他們的分享中也有得著許多,但是,有時看了心情也會受到一些影響。我想,目前最影響我專心的,大概就是face book了。

這也是一個操練,如何不必關掉我的face book,又不會影響到我專心讀書呢?有了!就是規定自己,每天花在face book的時間不能超過20分鐘,20分鐘以後一定要sign off。我不是說face book不好,我在 face book上看到很多弟兄姊妹們有很好的服事與分享,在他們的見證分享中我有很多的學習,還有生活常識的分享、佳餚的分享,都很棒!只是目前這不是我能做到的,因為要專注於讀書,日後吧。

保羅說的好:「你你們要謹慎行事,不要像愚昧人,當像智慧人。要愛惜光陰,因為現今的世代邪惡。不要作糊塗人,要明白主的旨意如何。」(弗5:15-17) 

所謂的「愛惜光陰」就是在用時間時,知道目前的優先次序是甚麼,上帝目前要我們做甚麼就順服的去做,這就是愛惜光陰。

如果上帝目前要我去旅遊,我順服的高高興興的去旅遊,如果上帝目前要我去打掃屋子,我順服的高高興興的去打掃屋子,……這就是「愛惜光陰」,這就是不作糊塗人,因為活在上帝的旨意中;單單知道上帝的心意是不夠的,要活在祂的心意中這才是順服,這才不是糊塗人。

保羅說「現今的世代邪惡」,那時是現在也是。無暇長篇論述,單單舉例來說好了,對神學生而言,魔鬼最邪惡的詭計就是讓神學生不能專心讀書,結果短短兩三年的學習時間,神學的學習成了馬馬虎虎,需要懂得的學術沒有歸正,需要調整的生命沒有歸心(心於處世時沒有歸向上帝,還是以flesh來面對所有的人事),那麼來神學院做甚麼呢?如此馬虎,對教會界而言也是個損失。

求主憐憫,讓我們要「要謹慎行事,不要像愚昧人,當像智慧人。要愛惜光陰」,不要讓魔鬼的詭計得逞,專注於上帝目前要我們作的事。

    每天運動至少三十分鐘,有助於提高專注力,念書會比較有效率。:)
    只要三十分鐘的運動可換整天的精神奕奕和專心,我覺得很划算~

    Joyce 老師加油!GO GO GO~

    Joyce平安: 我呼應 神的呼召,即將於6月20.21日至聖光神學院應試,感謝主,你的版面改得更井然有序了.
    現在我每天晚上工作後,總靈修到3點,中午起來再讀經,不像從前每天清晨起來讀經禱告,好不習慣.
    懇請Joyce為我代禱,順利考上神學院,日後為主做工.
